    SubjectFollow up to: NFS/RPC Hangs after updating time...
    This is a follow-up...

    After a huge pain in the rear upgrading from a
    2.6.11++ to a 2.6.23-rc3 (I'll give the powerpc
    folks a 'piece' of my mind on that front) - the
    NFS hang problem that I was experiencing on the
    older kernel is NOT occurring on this new version.

    Now what do I do?

    Is the net/sunrpc net/nfsx pieces isolated enough
    from the rest of the kernel that I could fork-lift
    it back to the 2.6.11 (or is that really a lost cause).

    Thanks for any/all feedback on this front!

    Can you reproduce the problem with the current kernel? (Say 2.6.22 or
